Portable Computer Targeting

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

A Portable Computer targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if the processing computer is identified as a portable computer in the current hardware profile on the processing computer, or if the processing computer is identified as a portable computer with the docking state specified in the targeting item. When Is Not is selected, the targeting item allows the preference item to be applied only if the processing computer is not identified as a portable computer in the current hardware profile on the processing computer, or if the docking state of the processing computer differs from the docking state specified in the targeting item.

 

Docking state

To allow the preference item to be applied only if the processing computer is portable and has a specified docking state, select a docking state. You can select any combination of docking states:

  • Docked

  • Undocked

  • Unknown

noteNote
Selecting a docking state in the targeting item is optional. If no states or all states are selected, then the targeting item detects only whether the processing computer is a portable computer.

Additional considerations

  • Battery Present and PCMCIA Present targeting can also be useful for targeting portable computers.

  • To reposition a targeting item within the list of targeting items that you have applied to a preference item, either drag the targeting item to a new position, or select the targeting item and then click the Move Up arrow or Move Down arrow.

  • Preference items are available only in domain-based GPOs.
